Forum: etree Subject: Prince sues fans for sharing live performance recordings

FYI

https://torrentfreak.com/prince-hits-music-pirates-with-22m-lawsuit-140127/

The complaint lists several pieces of audio offered by the defendants, concluding Prince performances from 2011 in North Carolina, 2002 in Oakland and 1983 in Chicago. Apparently even the circulation of a 31-year-old live set damages Prince’s earning capability, with the singer leveling charges of direct copyright infringement, ‘unauthorized fixation and trafficking in sound recordings’, contributory copyright infringement and bootlegging.

A good reminder that all the bands in the Live Music Archive are specifically asked / give approval for archive.org inclusion so that the above never happens here. Personally I think Prince is way overboard.
